My mom started a blog. Following suit was my older sister, myself, and now my uncle.
What a trend setter.
It's been rumored a couple of my cousins may also start them.
Allow me to explain something quickly. My restaurant is located in a downtown hotel, only a short SkyWalk away from the RCA Dome (which is now being torn down, I believe Dealer Expo was the last event held in it), the Convention Center, Conseco, and a number of other attractions in downtown Indy (Circle Centre Mall, Monument Circle, the Capitol). So, obviously, when there are conventions, and the mall isn't open, the only place to eat a cheap breakfast downtown is the McDonald's I work in. You can go to One South, which is located about 50 feet away, but you'll pay about $17 for your breakfast (which is why the only time I ever went there was with my family, and I didn't have to pay). One South is really good, and the workers are really nice (our back entrances are next to each other), but not worth $17.
Anyway, wow...off the subject.
Campus Crusades for Christ was in Indy at the beginning of the year, for a few days. Their convention was only a few thousand, so it was fairly small. Anyway, I was helping to take orders, because I didn't staff any extra people for the convention (okay, I forgot about it), so I was running between a register, getting food, and in the grill, for most of the days of that.
So all conventions come with (dorky) name tags. It's how you get into the Convention Center. No tag, no entry. So, of course, they have all sorts of information. Names, where they're from, sometimes what hotel they're in, all sorts of good stuff (I usually only care about where they're from).
The whole time, I had been thinking "I wonder if anyone from SVSU will be here".
Sure enough, not long after we opened, a guy's tag said "Saginaw Valley State University", to which I said "SVSU! I'm going there in the fall!" To which he replied, "I go there right now!"
Anyway...I looked as his name, and since it was incredibly common, I remembered it. I later found him on Facebook, and we actually talk sometimes, and he's a pretty cool guy, thus far (seeing as we don't really know each other...at all).
Last night I was looking at groups on Facebook, and came across a ton of SVSU groups. And as I was looking, found a couple of the Campus Crusades groups.
And then found some of the videos they made from when they were in Indy.
The whole time I was watching the videos, I kept thinking, "Wow! Indy looks so fun, I wish I could have been there!"
Then I realized, I was there. I live here, and only live like, 15 minutes from the hotel I work inside of.
There is no point to this. Simply that I'm excited to get to SVSU. I found out I don't have to live in the freshman dorms. In fact, I found out I'm not even allowed to live in the freshman dorms. That's amazing.
One of my friends was going to be one of my roommates, but he actually backed out, because he needs to save money for going abroad, so he can graduate (which makes sense, since he's an International Relations major).
Lastly. For those of you who don't know, I was unfairly discriminated out of guessing who my mom is talking about in her latest blog. What's really unfair, she hasn't even given me a reason yet, as to why I wasn't allowed to participate.
But I do know the answer now. It took me forever, but I finally remebered.
